27TH APRIL – 1ST MAY 2024


Join us, Ingela Doyle, Catherine Godbolt and high performance coach Sandy Loder, for a highly individualised 4-day wellbeing retreat in the quiet olive groves of Andalucia in Southern Spain. 

Transform your wellbeing in just 4-days!

At Wild Retreats, we support and strengthen.

We bring our 40 years of wellbeing and performance expertise to this special retreat. We will be using all our various skills and sessions to help you feel physically and mentally refreshed.

We provide you with the tools and experiences needed for realigning your body, mind and soul. Expect to feel a renewed sense of aliveness, joy and purpose from our curated programme of rejuvenating wellbeing practices, feedback and guided activities in a supportive group. 

As well as yoga, meditation, sound baths, massages, mindfulness sessions and locally sourced delicious and nutritious anti-inflammatory food, you will receive a body alignment treatment, an individualised wellbeing and resilience report and enjoy daily guided 3-hour walks in the beautiful Spanish countryside.

As part of our Yin and Yang approach, you can enjoy local Spanish wine over supper and good company around the fire and poolside in the evening, making this a great opportunity to make new friends and have some fun in the tranquil olive groves of Andalucia in Southern Spain.

This is more than just a retreat.


Wild Retreats was founded by Retreat Box founders, Catherine Godbolt and Ingela Doyle. The passion behind Retreat Box is all about bringing practical and beautiful wellbeing expertise to the individual at home. With  Wild Retreats, we have gone a little bit further. We are bringing some expert technical skills to this retreat so that you can better understand your wellbeing and resilience from Sandy’s feedback and also have a Body Alignment Treatment with Catherine to maximise your structural and energetic balance. Wild Retreats is not just a retreat. It is somewhere you can come refresh, mend and be ready to get back on your journey with bounce, vigour and a smile on you face.
